This was a great hike despite the smoke filled air coming from the wildfires. I can tell on a bright sunny day, the views would be amazing so I still gave this a 5 even though my pics show a lot of haze. I’m not sure I would rate this trail hard...maybe moderate. It took me 3 hours with no significant break. It is pretty steep and tiring going up the Misery Ridge section in the beginning but doesn’t take to long to complete that part. There are some switchbacks about half way that are a little tiring but nothing like the beginning of the trail. It’s a very quiet trail and I only saw a few hikers once I got on the summit trail. I guess the haziness from the smoke may have helped in terms of keeping it from being too hot. If you want to enjoy the views, do it on a sunny cooler day or go early as someone else said. It can be easy to slip on the gravel rocky surface, so be careful going up and especially coming down. Once you leave the Burma road section heading for the wolf tree trail portion, it is a little steep and rocky coming down so be especially careful there.

Relatively easy hike to the lake, which offered a one-of-a-kind view w/ the reflection of the Mt on the water. If you're up for it, I'd highly recommend going up Tom Dick and Harry Mt. It's well worth the time, distance, and incline for the breathtaking view at the top. All-in-all, I spent about 4 hours on the trail. As others have said, get there early, parking is slim.

Picturesque and easy.

Trillium use to be something of beauty.
Although the view will always be there..
The lake sticks&full of endless dead fish.
There's plenty of trash laying all about.
Disrespectful.
Besides being so heavy in traffic-any of the multiple lakes with less crowds will suit better!

Super popular trail, seriously the foot traffic.
I'm glad I did it at least once but that will be the last time.
Not a good first starter trail if you're not use to hills.
It only flattens out once you're almost to the smaller, clear lake itself.
Well kept up with trash&the maintenance but like I said-heavy traffic.

Absolutely stunning. But pretty packed. Parking is tough so get an early start.

Headed up early. Nice quiet trail.

Road is open and some snow on parts of trail. Extremely muddy in the meadow. Wildflowers are just starting to bloom.

Amazing views!! Just need to be careful with sneaky waves and watch your steps.

This is a great walk to do with young teens and people new to hiking. It’s not too long and there is elevation to get your heart rate up for anyone wanting a challenge. The view is spectacular and there are places to rest and have lunch. I cannot wait to bring more family members to enjoy this hike with.

Amazing hike. Very steep both up and down but so worth it! Go early to avoid the heat if the day. Bring lots of water!

This seems like a popular trail, but not overly crowded. There are some camp sites at the lake, and if you keep going to the top there are great views of the entire area.

Veda and Mirror are preferable to Trillium Lake. Crowds are awful. Trail is in utter disrepair. Signage sucks. It was overcast, therefore views of Mount Hood were non-existent.

If we had more time, we would have climbed Tom Dick and Harry, which is on same trail path. The loop trail itself is not quite 4 miles, but it is lovely. If comparing lake to lake, we preferred Veda Lake. However, access to Mirror Lake TH is right on highway. Get there early for parking and expect crowds.

To call this a hike would be a bit of an exaggeration. Went on a Sunday in August and it was so packed it took us about 10 minutes to find a parking spot. Entire lake was full of people on floaties and kayaks and paddle boards, all of the beaches were loaded with people... Just not the place to be if you're looking for a peaceful hike. That being said, if being at a busy beach is your scene, it was a beautiful beach with an incredible view of Mt. Hood, but it wasn't my thing.

Yeah it’s an easy walk around and it can be crowded but, come on, it’s beautiful and you can swim. But if you want to add some spice bushwhack up the ridge at the far end of the lake. It a hard climb but worth it. At the top turn left and go just about as far as you can. You will be rewarded by the most breathtaking views of Broken Top and S Sister ever. Then a quick trip down (you can’t miss the lake) and you earned your swim. The hike up and down is steep so you flip flops are not going to cut it. Be prepared.

Nice, quick hike that offers amazing views of both the entire lake and Wizard Island.

Bring the whole fam for this one! Mee-Maw and Pop-Pops? They can nail this utterly flat 1.7mi. LIttle cousin Timmy? He won't even need coddling or an extra juicebox to complete this tourist-laden lakeside loop. And fat Aunt Sharon? She'll recall days of yore when it was just "Shari" as she mobs around this short loop like the spritely cross-country runner she was back in college.

It's flat, dead-easy, and on weekends the parking lot is a circuis. Is Multnomah Falls your jam? Cool. Then so is the Tood Lake Loop Trail.

But maybe when at Multnomah Falls you're all "eff this." Maybe you tend more towards the 16mi Larch Mountain trail up and out of M. Falls? If so, then check out the 15-17 mellow miles of the Todd Lake/Soda Creek/Brokentop Trail that ends above the ridge at No Name Lake. It starts here and, well, "it good."

But if you're into kids, tourists, dogs, and "RV people," well, then the Todd Lake Loop Trail may be your Valhalla.

Beautiful waterfalls!!

It’s in the shade and gorgeous! Saw South Falls and Lower South Falls.

Great hike but hit it early to avoid congestion.

Really nice. Lots of up on the way to the lake.

Easy and beautiful hike around the lake. Bring layers - when the wind picks up it can be chilly in the shade even on a day that is hot at lower altitude. Given that, it is a great place to go to get a break from the heat.

Nice easy hike. Beautiful beach

Great hike. Our 20 month old was able to walk around. The views are awesome and the lake is worth going.

Pleasant, well-shaded trail through forest that culminates with a lovely lake & great view of Mt. Hood.

Steady elevation gain to the top, but nothing dramatic. Many exposed roots & one short section across large, loose rock that could prove difficult for those with disabilities or nervous dogs. There are also two quite narrow wooden bridges. Mosquitoes noticeable around the lake area in July.

Get there early. Arrived at 9am on a summer Saturday & all trailhead parking was full. Had to park in the Skibowl parking lot down the road, which adds a very unpleasant extra mile (there & back) along the highway shoulder.

This trail forms the lower half of the Tom, Dick & Harry Mountain Trail (https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/oregon/tom-dick-and-harry-mountain-trail).

Strenuous hike to the summit and back down around the back, almost all in the sun. But you get the tough part over with fast and get to walk along the river trail the rest of the way. Took a nice dip in the water. Bring more water than you think you need

This was a nice trail, we started at Tumalo Creek trail and arrived st the visitors parking area to a great view of falls from a distance. I was tired but wanted to get closer and possibly underneath but didn’t do it. Hopefully before we leave I’d like to get to the visitor area on top of falls!
